In addition, Bayern is already be in contact with the Gladbach professional. Real Madrid is also interested in Neuhaus.

While Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummnenigge recently emphasized that they will not be signing any new players in the winter, Hasan Salihamidzic already seems to be actively working on summer transfers in the background. Florian Neuhaus of Borussia M’Gladbach seems to be the main target of Bayern.

According to “Sky” reporter Marc Behrenbeck, Neuhaus wants to take the next step in his career: “He wants to go to a top team and preferably already next summer”. His colleague Max Bielefeld, meanwhile, sees Bayern in a good position: “FC Bayern makes the most sense.” Neuhaus could take over the role of Corentin Tolisso in Munich, the Frenchman is repeatedly associated with a departure from the German record champion: “The planning of Bayern in the midfield is still unclear, but the fact is that Corentin Tolisso is not as convincing as they had imagined. Therefore, there could be a gap in the summer, which he could close perfectly.”

As Behrenbeck reports, there were already initial talks between Neuhaus and Bayern: “According to our information, there was contact, but no concrete negotiations between the parties yet. However, the interest was deposited several times.”

In addition to Bayern, Real Madrid is also said to be keeping a close eye on events surrounding Neuhaus. Neuhaus made a strong impression in the Champions League in the two games against Real and is also on the wish list of the Blancos.
